Key facts and trends in acute care

SAVE ITEM

06 / 11 / 2015

Welcome to our factsheet giving an overview of major trends and challenges facing the acute sector.

The information has been compiled on NHS trusts and foundation trusts (FTs) that provide secondary care services including A&E and major surgical procedures. These trusts include teaching hospitals, smaller district and general hospitals and specialist hospitals.

In compiling this factsheet we are conscious that many acutes are increasingly providing a broader range of services outside of hospitals. The main focus here is on their role in delivering acute care. The data has been collected from a variety of sources and covers hospital activity, A&E, finances, workforce, social care, patient and staff satisfaction and new models of care.
